I am an author who lives in a lovely countryside area in the north west of England and works as a data analyst for one of the local Health Authorities. I write under the name of Lynne North. I have been a prolific reader all my life, and for many years have spent most of my free time writing. As well as being educated up to degree level, I have completed courses and received diplomas from ‘The Writing School Ltd’ and ‘The Academy of Children’s Writers’. My aim in life has always been to write, and I had a sideline of freelance writing for more years than I like to admit to having lived. In earlier days this mainly involved published articles in such magazines as ‘Prediction’.
I had two children’s novels ‘Gertie Gets it Right (eventually)’ and ‘Zac’s Destiny’ published by ‘YouWriteOn’, the writers’ site sponsored by the British Arts Council, in 2008. The covers provided were pretty awful, so I carried on seeking a good publisher.
‘Caution: Witch in Progress’, a rewrite of ‘Gertie’, was published by Ghostly Publishing in 2013 and launched at Earl’s Court Book Fair in London. Though my publisher ceased to publish in 2014, I have kept ‘Caution’ out on Kindle on Amazon worldwide. I also had two other books due to be published by Ghostly before Christmas 2014. One of them was a rewrite of ‘Zac’s Destiny’ which I have now also released on Kindle under my own publishing name of ‘Crystal Pen Publishing’. I recently released something completely different on Kindle too, a compilation of thirteen macabre Twist in the Tale short stories, definitely NOT for children!
In 2015 I was lucky enough to discover Crimson Cloak Publishing and to be taken on as one of their new authors. New books will be coming out in 2016!

Exciting, fast-paced story for the young and old!!
I was lucky enough to get to get an advanced reader copy of this story. Lynne knows I have grandchildren who have loved her past novels, such as Caution: Witch in Progress, and Zac’s Destiny. I may be an adult, (an adult plus some) but I’m still a child at heart. Who wouldn’t enjoy a story about an unlucky leprechaun?
Finn is a young Leprechaun with an adventurous heart. He wants to find a way out of their boring little village and see what the big world is like. Only it’s not such a safe place for an unlucky leprechaun like himself. He gets into a big jam when he finds himself captured and put on exhibition for a traveling show. But can he find a way to escape and get back home again?
Back home, his best friend is lonely and scared for Finn. He demands to be taken along when Finn’s father decides to go out searching. There are a lot of lessons to be learned here for our own children, because let’s face it, they all tend to reach an age where they get bored and think there is more excitement to be found outside their safe homes. Finn gets out of one jam only to find himself right back in another. And on the other side, his friends and family run into their own problems while trying to find and rescue him. I can’t imagine any child (or big child) who won’t enjoy this wonderful tale.
